Course summary

This programme is Part 2 of the three parts required to become a professional architect in the UK. Continue your architectural studies with a focus on quality design, innovating responsibly in a world of finite resources, and shaping environments that leave a positive legacy. Learn through a combination of taught modules, lectures, seminars and workshops, and further your professional and creative skills in a series of vertical design studios conceived as research units and run across the two years. These studios will involve partnerships with practices, Invisible Studio and Haworth Tompkins, including the sharing of a design problem and an investigative and applied research approach that will become the basis for your design thesis and dissertation.[1] You’ll be supported to become an active researcher and innovative practitioner with a formidable skillset. We'll also encourage you to explore opportunities such as gaining teaching experience, studying abroad, and undertaking credit-bearing practical training.
